Pretty shade

Good morning all. Hope you are well. Today's post is a little altered lampshade for a change. 

Mum has just had her bedroom redecorated in pretty blues and so wanted this plain black lampshade to look a bit prettier. 

She didn't have any matching wallpaper left so I chose a paper that would tone in with her room. The paper is from the vintage notes collection and I used parts of 2, 12 x 12 sheets. I cut these to size and stuck them down with cosmic shimmer glue. 

Then I added some pale blue ribbon over the seams and attached this with the hot glue gun. 

I could have left it there but of course it wasn't quite enough for me so I got the lace out too. 

I added lace to the top and bottom, again with the hot glue gun. And then to finish it off I added some small clear gem strips down each piece of ribbon. 

It looks lovely at the side of Mum's bed.

Hope you like it. See you soon. 

Take care.
